KLR in SW Wyoming

Hey everyone, My name is Dan and I just recently picked up a 2006 KLR650 for fun out here in the high plains desert and commuting. It's been awhile since I owned a bike so it's time to get "reaquainted". The only complaint I have so far is I can't get the weather to cooperate!!!!!

Good grief if you live in Wyoming you should be used to that by now, hehe, welcome..

I used to be twice as fast and half as good, now I am twice as good and half as fast, gettin older not such a bad thing...

I should be shouldn't I!!!!! The cold isn't bad..... I've ridden back and forth to work with the temp in the mid 20's but it's only a little over a mile so it's hard to go to the hassle of the rain gear when it's raining and it takes longer to get dressed then to actually ride!!!!

True that, I lived in Rocksprings for a number of years, not sure I would ride as much there as I do here seeings that the wind would make it more interesting then I would like, gettin raingeared up for a mile ride like you say is almost not worth it, if it were me I would find a longer way to work... hehe

Yeah the wind can be fun at times...... as you know though... if you live here very long you don't consider it windy until it's over 30mph!!! The wife asks me "are you going to ride in this wind?" and I just tell her I generate my own wind anyway so what's the difference?!
